Holding On and Being Thankful!

Well, since I hit my 31st week of pregnancy I have become anxious about going into preterm labor, but God has been so gracious in reminding me that I have so much else to focus on. Basically, all the blessings he has given me. So, I am writing them down, so I can look back and be reminded.

Things I am thankful for...

-My husband who has been working so hard at his internship (he is really enjoying it) :)
-How helpful Aaron is when I cant do normal things I use to be able to do before I got this belly. :)
-Before Andrew goes to bed he tells us, good night, sweet dreams, love you.
-Andrew is healthy and talking up a storm
-Andrew is in daycare only 2 days a week and Aaron stays home with him the other 3 during the school year
-God is continuing to bless us with community and growing friendships
-my pregnancy has gone well so far
-we are having a GIRL! :)
-friends have blessed us with clothes, bouncer, ect. for our little Leah! (Thank you Reci, Sami, Jackie, and Nikki) :)
-I have a job that I love and a partner that is amazing
-my maternity subs have been worked out
-I have an OBGYN that takes great care of me and I have so much confidence in
-We have 2 sets of grandparents that love Andrew and soon to be Leah soooo much!
-God has provided for us financially when big deductibles came up (Drew's tubes, pregnancy, my car)
-We have crate trained dogs that are easy, Lola and Leeroy
-God is continuing to teach me how to rely on him, even when situations are out of my control. It is not easy at times, but I know my family and friends have seen progress which so encouraging.
